I have developed this recipe over the past 6 months or so. I just kept making it, revising it, and then forgetting to add it to the site. But we kept making this over and over again because it is so delicious, we always had the ingredients in the house to make it happen, and […]
This dairy-free creamy sauce seems like it should have something like cheese or cream in it, but it doesn’t. The base of this sauce is cauliflower, which means that it has all the benefits of vegetables instead. But because I add a whack-ton of garlic (and honestly, that’s probably what I need to start measuring […]
This vegan Mac n Cheeze is incredibly easy to make with any blender, especially a high powered one like the Vitamix. And so many fewer chemicals and less guilt than the original. I also tried the vegan cheese sauce with chickpea noodles made by Banza, and didn’t miss “regular” noodles. I love the limited ingredient […]

Ashley’s new cookbook features 80 healthy and delicious vegan, oil-free and gluten free recipes! This article also features a review of the cookbook and two chances to win […]
One of my all-time favorite things to make is the simple mashed potato. Maybe it’s texture, or part nostalgia, it’s truly one of my favorite foods. I used to make mashed potatoes so unhealthy by adding butter, cream, and all sorts of other things (bacon bits, you name it). But the crazy thing is that […]
Nutritional Yeast has a curious name, but is a common staple in the vegan pantry. Read about how this nutritious ingredient is used in recipes, and how it’s a healthful addition to your cupboard.
Subway ran a trial for a new sandwich that includes vegan meatballs earlier this year in August at select restaurants in Canada, USA, and in other international locations. This temporary trial addition to their menu included meatballs and marinara sauce in their sandwich, with cheese included (if you are not ordering it vegan). It sounds […]
I love vegan ranch dressing in the summer. It’s refreshing on a summer day. It’s perfect on top of a salad, in a buffalo wrap, or for dipping vegetables or breadsticks. It works in so many different ways, I almost always have a jar in the fridge. So I thought what about a cool dill-based […]
Learning different ways to prepare tofu will help you understand the possibilities of this ingredient, and as such add more variety to your meals. Tofu is something many people eating a standard American diet may have not encountered, or prepared, in their own kitchens. And if you eat it straight out of the package, it […]
Let’s face it, sometimes salads can get a bit boring. Not to mention a very “cliche” vegan choice (don’t all of our omnivore friends think all we eat is salad?). This vegan Caesar salad is simple to make and full of flavor due to the tangy dressing (found here). Honestly, I don’t miss the dairy […]
This is my favorite sandwich to make. This one is a regular go-to for lunch. It’s easy to make, and of course adjust based on whatever vegetables are in season and in the fridge at the moment. The key is the red-pepper jelly or jam along with some form of vegan non-cheese spread (vegan cream […]
